Bottling yesterday. Pears from my tree out back. Harvested last January (Southern Hemisphere) summer. Pear Champs 37 bottles and a still pear wine 35 bottles. I fermented 30 litres in EC1118 and the other 30 litres using a Gewurtz yeast . Finally blended them together two months back and bottled yesterday. Very drinkable now. ( the still wine) . Champs undergoing secondary in the bottles. However I won't actually drink any of this until next Dec / Jan .

My work buddies are always looking out for my best interests. They think I should get one of these to park in my driveway permanently.

Yes. Great idea. It could be called Mr Frothy and play Umpapa music. And on Sundays they have a happy hour moment if you run up to the mobile barrel wearing lederhosen.

Looking good. What kind of cork/closure are you using on the still wine?

I use Nova Twist Screw Caps. They are a tad pricey but they are reusable and capable of many cycles. With still wine I also do a few corks for those bottles that I give away, as no one seems to appreciate costs when giving them a gift. Cheers

Cool! Might be a collectors item soon like a DeLorean.....

And your price OTD was?
Ain't cheap...but my daughter told me "dad, you only live once, buy it if you really want it", so I took the plunge for $56.5k due to Tesla only producing the long range battery, $9k extra, plus pearl white paint, $1.5k, plus EAP (enhanced auto pilot) for $5k.

I've been waiting for a year, paid my reservation July 2017 ans picked it up today.....

forgot to say, that's not including sales tax if your state requires one.

I hate Tesla with a passion. Can't wait for them to go under. Someone wanted to go on a date but owned a Tesla and I seriously flaked on a date because she drove a Tesla.

Lol
Tesla, electric vehicles....that is the future.

Congrats, Varis. Enjoy it.

I was in Norway recently, and there were tons and tons of Teslas. (Norway has ~99% hydroelectric power, so electric is cheap, and electric cars are encouraged.) It looked like the future!

Are you going to install a 220V charger at the house?
